This study was investigated the correlation between thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy and serological test's concentrations. I examined fifty patients who were diagnosed with thyroid cancer from June 2012 to December 2012 in Pathology of a certain university hospital. Healthy fifty people were selected as a control group. Thyroid function tests were used as variables. In conclusion, The thyroglobulin and autoantibody was showed positive correlations in cancer groups. also Thyroglobulin Ab was showed a little correlation. If we examine this study items, we will get help in early diagnosis.
